More Workshop Transformations…

Snapped the ‘before’ of this one before it was completely painted over…

I think this one was American Paint Company’s First Lady,  a light pale lilac –

This one, went metallic with Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Chocolate, then a warmer silver metallic blend dry brushed on

and lastly, Caromal Colours Toner, brushed on and wiped back to soften the glow

This after,  CeCe Caldwell Smoky Mountain Gray over Simply White

Before

DSC_5440

After,  another Caromal Textured Basecoat in Chocolate, then a champagne blend of metallic brushed over top

DSC_5455

and Toner to soften.  See that chocolate on the base popping through the finish?  That’s Caromal’s great textured paint – when the top paint layer dries  you can sand a little to ‘scuff’ down to the textured paint,  then  apply the toner –

She did the ‘feet’ bronze – love the contrast

and a pretty stencil on top,  in Toner

Before

This was Caromal’s Textured Basecoat Candy Apple  OVER Textured Basecoat Mustard…   Chipping Creme is applied (brush on and let dry) between the 2 paints,  necessary when you layer 2 Caromal paints (it allows the paints to relase off each other)

DSC_5480

So, brush/stipple on a layer of Textured Basecoat Mustard, dry.  Brush layer Chipping Creme, dry.  Brush layer of Textured Basecoat Candy Apple, dry. Sand/scrape to reveal.   Brush on Toner and softly wipe back.   Changed up the hardware too – great transformation!

DSC_5449

And this,  CeCe Caldwell Santa Fe Turquoise…

DSC_5453

I think Vintage White?

DSC_5468

Before,

DSC_5875

This one was cool – first layer Caromal Textured Basecoat Chocolate, brushed on thin, then second coat CeCe Caldwell Kentucky Mint.  Sanded back to reveal a little of that texture and sealed with Satin Finish.  That paper will be later modge podged to the drawer front, and a soft antique glaze applied to the whole piece

DSC_5885

We don’t glaze the chalk/clay/mineral paints the night of workshop – I prefer getting a coat of sealer on the paint (which we DO do in class), and then waiting until the piece is good and dry, then applying the glaze…   this way gives you way more control then trying to glaze over raw chalk/clay paint.

And remember,  NO GLAZING over wax…

  1. I wish you guys would do some utube videos on DIY furniture painting. The only hesitation in me buying your paint is I don’t know how you use it! Please consider sending out videos on these emails or use utube. I for one would be VERY interested and would for sure buy your paint for many projects I have here in my home and business. You’re too far away to take a class from so this would be perfect. Live Love, Marlene :0)

    • I’ve done a few videos – thing is to make it viewable quality it needs to be done by someone other than myself , which is what I’ve done but they cost $$ to do… there is a ton of info out there on how to’s, step by steps, photos of play by play , and every order we put together always has simple how to instructions included. The paints really ARE easy enough to use, I’d say don’t hesitate anymore – start small and order a sampler size – they are great for trying out on small projects – see how you like it – there is so much that can be done with paint!
